First of all, I want to praise our great Lord for all that He has done in and through our family, as well as MLBC. In the fall of 2010, through a series of events, God made it clear to us that He wanted us to plant the Moses Lake Baptist Church. After traveling for a few months to raise some support, we started the church on March 6, 2011. From the very first moment in which we made the official decision to come to Moses Lake, we have seen the devil fight tooth and nail, but in an even greater way, we have witnessed as God continues to work miracles.

Over the last five years we, like all church planters, have faced serious challenges. However, it has been awesome to see God’s faithfulness to us and His continued work in growing us spiritually through each of these situations. As we just celebrated 5 years in Moses Lake, it is astounding to reflect on all God has done. Through these last few years, we have seen many people accept Christ as their Saviour and follow the Lord in baptism. We are on our 5th time to knock every door in Moses Lake, and we have been thrilled to see our church family learn to step out in missions giving. We have also been excited to see another church (Ellensburg Baptist Church in Ellensburg, WA.) start out of MLBC in the fall of 2014.

God has allowed our family to be full-time for the last 3 years, and two years ago, we were blessed to bring on a part-time staff couple (Robert & Beth Elliott). We have another couple (Micah & Rebekah Bosworth) who are also working with MLBC, and we pray we are able to
bring them into a part-time basis soon, as well.

If someone were to have told me 10 years ago, as I was going through the Master’s program at WCBC, that God would have worked as He has, I don’t know if I would have believed him. But as I look back over the last 10 years, and especially over the last 5 years, I stand in awe. We truly serve an amazing God with much in store for His children. I am definitely humbled and honored to be a part of His work in Moses Lake, Washington.
